The Yorkshire Ripper is Dead


Peter Sutcliffe caught COVID-19 in Frankland Prison in Durham but he refused treatment.
He also had other health issues so this wasn't going to end well for him.
He died today and was 74 years old.

Wearside Jack (John Samuel Humble) died in July 2019.


What was that you said again?

Didn't he refuse treatment for everything and refuse food as well or am I thinking of the wrong person?
Anyway, he is dead now and that puts that to an end.

He's still grabbing the headlines.
Good riddance.

I moved this to the City Lounge because this topic has a Wearside connection.


..... and Sunderland, the underdogs, are in the lead!

Well you could say that if it wasn't for Wearside Jack, at least 3 more women might have been alive today so both as bad as the other.
